Hola ladies! We knows it’s tough to find the right shade of lipstick. It’s a huge trend in the Fashionista world these days and we think it’s fabulous! The right shade can compliment skin tones, be used as an accessory or jazz up a casual outfit!
Top 3 tips when trying to choose a lipstick:
01. The most flattering color will be one to two shades darker than your natural lipshade, according to popular make-up stylist, Bobbi Brown.
02. If you’re a drugstore make-up kinda gal, grab a few shades that you like and head over to the part of the store with the most natural lighting. It’s best to look at shades in natural lighting to see what the true color is! Lighting is oh so tricky.
03. Hate the color you just bought? DON’T throw it away! A fun way to reuse lip color you just don’t like is to combine a bit of the lipstick, some vaseline, and if you want… even add an essential oil like grapeseed or vitamin E for moisture. Combine the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl, pop it in, heat for about 10 seconds just to soften and mix well! Buy a small container (or use a leftover candy tin if you’re going green!) Make sure you get just the right tint! Place the mixture in tins for a super cute DIY tinted lip balm! Made too much? Give it away in cute containers as an affordable gift!
